Hi ladies! Today I thought I would review the By Terry Touche Veloutee Highlighting Concealer. I've had this for a couple of months now, I really wanted to try it as it's one of those highlighting concealers like YSL Touche Eclat. I have never tried YSL Touche Eclat as I've heard it doesn't have much coverage ,even a YSL sales assistant told me it isn't really a concealer it's more of a highlighter. Anyway back to the By Terry... So the reason I really wanted to try the By Terry concealer is because it is a highlighting concealer but it has a decent amount of coverage too. It is expensive at £33 it's the most expensive concealer I have ever used to date, but you do get 6.5 ml of product where as for the YSL Touche Eclat you only get 2.5 ml for £24, so the By Terry actually works out cheaper considering the amount of product you get.
The packaging looks very luxurious, it has a brush applicator that you click to release the product, while the packaging looks great I haven't been impressed by it, the main problem I've had and I don't know weather it's just my one but I find when I click it to get the product out, most of the the time the button stays clicked in, and I have to keep clicking to get the button to un-click or sometimes it releases itself. For the price of the product I would expect the packaging to work better, but again it might just be the fact that I got a bad one, although I did see reviews on SpaceNK of someone saying they had the same problem.
Moving on from the packaging and onto the actually concealer. They come in three shades, I got mine in the shade cream. I use this mainly underneath my eyes but sometimes I apply it to my chin, centre of nose and forehead to highlight. The consistency is thin and lightweight, on the packaging it says full coverage I wouldn't say its full coverage, more medium. It dries to a natural matte finish and doesn't crease under my eyes, you can use it on it's own but I have quite bad dark circles/bags under my eyes so I usually use this over the top of a concealer with more coverage (MAC studio sculpt). I like how the By Terry adds more coverage under my eyes and brightens to helps banish undereye dark circles.
Overall I think this is a lovely product aside from some issues I have with the packaging. I wouldn't say you need to rush out and buy this! But if you are looking to splurge a bit and your looking for a lightweight highlighting concealer with good coverage then I would recommend it.
